PREP ROUNDUP: Ashland drops Fairland, 5-3

FAIRLAND — Evan Yongue fired a complete game as Ashland played small ball to eke out a 5-3 win over Fairland (Ohio) on Monday night.

Yongue tallied 10 strikeouts, a walk and hit three batters in seven innings. Ashland’s defense, which committed just one error, turned two double plays to assist the right-handed pitcher.

Ashland (14-7) plated three runs in the top of the third — one on a Logan Salow RBI groundout, and two on a Cade O’Bryan RBI single that was followed by an error.

O’Bryan and Cody Conley each hit a sacrifice fly to account for the other two Tomcat runs.

Ashland travels to Russell tonight.

  • Tomcats walk off with 2-1 win over Musketeers

    Never mind that Ashland has scored the third-fewest runs of any 16th Region baseball team playing a full schedule.
    Prolific? Maybe not. Clutch? Resoundingly yes, at least over the past week or so.
    The Tomcats plucked their third walk-off win in eight days — all by identical 2-1 scores — Thursday when Cam Fritz laced a single to deep right-center to drive in Evan Cox and beat Greenup County in eight innings.

  • Ashland's Hensley no-hits Boyd County

    Thanks to more dazzling pitching from Megan Hensley, Dave Miller’s last trip to Cannonsburg as Ashland’s softball coach became a golden memory.
    Hensley fired her third no-hitter in a week and McKenzie Vanover walloped a two-run homer as the Kittens blanked red-hot Boyd County 5-0 on Thursday night.

  • UK fans swarm Wearhouse to meet Randle

    One young fan estimated Julius Randle’s height at 11 feet.
    Her kid sister chimed in with another description: “Freakishly tall!” said 8-year-old Hailey Stevens.
    Brooklyn Stevens was only four feet and three inches off, but the 6-9 power forward is larger than life to plenty of Kentucky fans.
    A showing of approximately 200 people provided proof of that on Thursday evening at Wildcat Wearhouse. The first few on the scene arrived at 2 p.m., 4 1/2 hours prior to Randle pulling into the parking lot.
